LibriVox recording of A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Part One of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Mars-Series. Easy, swank, pulp reads about an omnipotent gentleman teleported to Mars, finding an outlandish society of ape-, tree- and lizardmen, red-, white-, yellowmen, brains on legs, strange bastions and curious apparatuses, where the strongest survives and women are needy beauties to be saved. How can something be so platitudinous and at the same time so imaginative and enthralling? Boys'...

Librivox recording of Walden by Henry David Thoreau Read by Gord Mackenzie. Walden by Henry David Thoreau is one of the best-known non-fiction books written by an American.

Librivox recording of Beyond Good and Evil , by Friedrich Nietzsche. First published in 1886 at Nietzsche's own expense, the book was not initially considered important. In it, Nietzsche denounced what he considered to be the moral vacuity of 19th century thinkers. He attacked philosophers for what he considered to be their lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their considerations of morality and values. Beyond Good and Evil is a comprehensive overview of...
